Aboriginal Chronic Conditions Network 2019 Conference
The NSW Government is committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal people, services and communities to address health disparities and improve health outcomes. Meaningful partnerships are critical to effective change.
As outlined in the NSW Aboriginal Health Plan 2013-2023, building trust through partnerships can be achieved by building relationships with and between service providers from the Aboriginal Health & Medical Research Council (AH&MRC), and the Aboriginal community controlled health services (ACCHSs). These relationships are important for service planning, design and implementation to improve health disparities for Aboriginal people. There is a need for coordination across all health services at national, state and local levels, including ACCHSs, local health districts/speciality health networks (LHD/SHNs), primary health networks (PHNs), other non-government organisations and private service providers.
With this in mind, the Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) will coordinate the 2019 Aboriginal Chronic Conditions Network Conference in partnership with the Centre for Aboriginal Health, AH&MRC and PHNs.
This year’s theme focuses particularly on the need for genuine partnerships and collaboration with Aboriginal organisations and communities. This is key to help build self-determination and the capacity for Aboriginal services being involved in designing and implementing in creating better health outcomes for Aboriginal people.
